Good appointment,with the World Cup coming up its good to have an Englishman with us who knows the conditions well. He is also known for his talent spotting skills so hopefully he can find someone in the domestic circuit instead of overusing the same failing players. Its funny how 50% people on the ESPN cricinfo article voted that 'he was too much of an unknown' to take this role. So was Hathurusingha and he was the best coach BD ever had. Lets just back him and hope Gary Kirsten has done us a great favour with this recommendation.

this is what I wrote about him in the next head coach thread
rhodes is a good coach. he has been coach for worcs since 2005 upto 2017 november.

I first saw his work in 2010 when shakib was playing for worcs. under rhoades worcs got promoted to first division in 2010 with a weak team and stayed in first division in 2011 with that weak team. moeen ali was product of his coaching.

he was suppose to take coaching for english lions in 2018 but a rape aligations for one of the worc players came up which rhodes supposedly knew and failed to or did not notify worc management. As a result he was suspended and lost the England lion coach position.

what I read about him in 2010 his coaching style is giving freedom to the players in their playing style

might not be good for our players

I forecast the next 12-15 pages of this thread will be a honeymoon phase for him.

It's up to him to take Bangladesh forward as far as possible in this period.

Looks like a good choice under the current circumstances.

Does this mean Walsh is out of the team or will he still be the "bowling coach"?

BCB approached Kluesener as a bowling coach in 2010.

http://www.cricbuzz.com/cricket-news/29963/klusener-rejects-bangladesh-coaching-offer

When Kluesner came to Bangladesh as a coaching staff of the Zimbabwe team in the tri nation series he said he was interested to work for Bangladesh. He was recently sacked by Zimbabwe.So I see what BCB is doing.

Former big name player or nor doesn't matter. What matters is what kind of coach he will be. personally i think Bangladesh team needs the hairdryer treatment which Sir Alex Ferguson used to give to under performing players. A strict disciplinarian is what we need to put some players straight

Equinox
June 5, 2018, 08:46 AM
He has decent coaching credentials and seems like a good choice under the circumstances.

It is near impossible to get a big name coach nowadays with the money on offer in T20 leagues around the world.

I second getting Streak on board as the assistant head coach/bowling coach. Didn't he get sacked by Zimbabwe after the WCQs?

Also a proper technician is needed as the batting coach. We really need to get the whole backroom in order before the World Cup.

I also agree we need someone who will need to enforce discipline in players. However Haturi did that and the players eventually got him the sack. The Board also needs to support the coach if he wants to be strict.

Not at all. Hathuru's autocratic tendencies is probably what led to the player revolt during the SA tour (Mushfiq captaincy, Shakib skipping tour alltogether). Once he realized he wasn't getting his way, he jumped ship.

But Hathu attempted to blacklist Mominul on the pretext of technical flaws instead of trying to fix the minor issues he has. On top of that he seemed to be on the same track of undermining Mosaddek with certain comments he made. All probably a ploy to ensure he gets to keep selecting his personal favorites Sabbir, Imrul, and Soumya without scrutiny.

He is yet give formal presentation to BCB. How come BCB says he will be the head coach ? Just because Garry prescribed ? Well, as per Steve, he is yet make decision.

"I can confirm I've had talks with Bangladesh," Rhodes told ESPNcricinfo. "And I can confirm I'm interested in what I think is a really prestigious role. But nothing is confirmed at this stage and nobody should jump the gun and presume it is."

Some useless people get to positions where they make themselves unreplacable and when you complain about them, the mgmt don't target them and instead target you, the complainer. Eventually, you just decide to walk out.

He used to be a very good wicketkeeper and a useful lower middleorder batsman when I first started supporting Worcestershire back in the late 80s. He played with some great players and big names within the country scene, Botham, Hick, Moody and Dilley to name a few. It has been interesting to see him transition into a coach within the county system. No fireworks in terms of results but then again, Worcestershire is not one of the fashionable county teams, so there is less opportunity. I wonder if this latter reality would play as an advantage in terms of coaching the Bangladesh team. I still follow Worcs and read all articles about their matches, so from that perspective, I get the impression that he is relatively adept at man-management. This is certainly useful to have when you have one or two star players like Sakib or Tamim, but I wonder how much of an impression he would make on the lesser players.

In terms of appointing him before a world cup in England, I think that is something of a masterstroke! Worcester's ground New Road is one of the prettiest in the country but also prone to really awful weather and in recent years had been under water once from a bit of flashflooding. So the Tigers would certainly be able to extricate every bit of information about how to play and win under awful weather :)

You will have watched the Sri Lanka series. The pitches are currently bouncing, and going to potentially suit their bowlers," he said. "My hunch is the pitches are going to be pretty similar. So we will try to incorporate our practices with bouncier, greener wickets in the three days of practice we have."

"Test matches, they're not complicated," he said. "In trying to win a Test match, you need a good start. There are ways of winning without that, but it's not rocket science. It's about getting out of the traps, building on getting a good score, or bowling the opposition out. Really, it's about not letting the opposition back in the game."

Can we get steve rhodes to peruse alan richardson for our bowling coach. anyone who doesn't know who alan richardson is, he played under rhodes in worcs and was absolutely unbelievable for 4 season at worcs. at age 37, he won wisden player of the year for worcs. since than he moved onto Warkicshire bowling coach role and is doing extremely well there.

I think the duo of rhodes and richardson can do wonder for us working together

Every single player aside from Mashrafe (veteran player) has suffered under Walsh. When we had Heath Streak, the players seem to hold a good line and length. There was also that the players thought of Aaqib Javed as someone who was easy to understand and approach. I think we also approached him as our bowling coach but he took PSL role and rather accepted short term stint.

He use to make the pacers go through certain drill.. before matches...

I was thinking... Steve couldn't have been that successful at Worcester being like really bad? could it be that we might have pulled in a good coach?

Definitely pulled in a good coach. He also had a job of head scout for ECB where he would go around and spot talent. We need someone like him in Bangladesh and get rid of these under-performing favourites from the team.

Need someone who can develop talent into performance, current under performing youngsters have talent but they just haven't improved, if anything they've gotten worse. A talent spotter is also great to have but definitely need someone who has the ability to turn talent into results.

If new coach has some say in selection in the upcoming series it will be interesting because he's got not much to go on other than stats and what he sees in practise. Hopefully he goes on what he sees and knows (as limited as it may be) not on what other management and senior players say. After all if you hire a coach you have to be confident in their abilities and their vision and back them.

Also need someone strong who can enforce good work ethic and professionalism and who doesn't let the seniors throw their power around.

Our contemporary (Bangladeshi) 'press' - journalists are predominantly 'poorly' educated or born of extremely 'limited' education' and often are involved in 'corruption' themselves (meaning, "they will write something bad about someone in one of the thousands of no value, no name printed sidewalk tabloids/trash - unless the someone pays them cash aka bribe" - I have solid proof on this statement that i just made). The majority and I mean a 'large' majority of our 'journalists' in Bangladesh are 'crap' and in a day to day business, they survive simply by 'plagiarism' and copying articles and items from foreign publishing or others without acknowledging or giving zero credit (I can literally provide hundreds of proof on this also

And that being said, of course, there are exceptions - like Rabid Imam and Mohammad Isam (aka Dizzy in BC).
